A systemic problem in entrepreneurship is the battle of being perfect vs. continual forward progress. All the gurus have their opinion. Even though I’m not guru, I’ll throw my hat into the ring as well.
The pursuit of perfection has left many great ideas lying dead on the road to completion.
I believe that setting arbitrary timelines to complete projects is essential. That’s one of the basic principles of this 30-day challenge. We set a timeline and we’ll do whatever we need to do hit our mark. That timeline allows us to be good, but we may have to sacrifice perfect.
There are times that perfect matters, but “very good” and released to the public is much better than “almost perfect” that never sees the light of day.
